Thoroughly enjoyable dinner! Hostess was accommodating and moved our table away from the door (it was cold). Food was beautifully presented and delicious, and prices were very reasonable. Also had one glass of wine that was excellent. I especially appreciated that several of the menu items provided vegan variations with separate entrée names to make ordering very easy. I will make a point to go to Lemon Grass again now that I know how good it is. Was also pleasantly surprised that there was a valet parking service for just $10 - well worth the price for the super convenience.

The food was terrific and our waiter, Aaron, was even better. I had the Zucchini Salmon with Green Curry, with rice. Just what I wanted! The portion was huge. Fortunately Mom and I shared.

Unfortunately, there is no accessible restroom. My 92 year old mom and I hiked down the stairs and back up, to make a pit stop.

Also, the volume was pretty loud and made conversation a bit challenging.

As always a very fine meal with excellent service. We have eaten at Lemongrass innumerable times. Food is wonderful, service attentive. The two sisters who own it are a delightful kick! Erin was our waiter and outstanding. Very intelligent, attentive and a good sense of humor. A terrific waiter.

It's advertised as a fusion menu but I felt it was neither authentic enough nor interesting enough upon fusing together. Pacific Alfredo sauce is a good examples - sounds interesting but in reality neither true Alfredo nor flavorful enough like Asian food - end result is bland.

Quick info: Vegan-friendly; Gluten-free friendly; Great service; Great food

As a party of 10 (with three children aged 1, 6, and 8) my daughter chose Lemongrass to celebrate her birthday. Our server, JORDAN, was personable and welcoming, he even engaged the kiddos. We were a difficult table with high demands (and messy children). But Jordan was incredibly accommodating, patient, and extremely attentive. We, however, were: asking a ton of questions; unorganized with no cohesive ordering; plus isolating our requests, imposing extraneous trips back and forth to the table. Nonetheless, our water was full; our drinks were served quickly; silverware was swapped before the next course, soup spoon was out WITH the soup; minimal table clutter; finally, our courses were perfectly timed. Our food was fantastic and exquisitely prepared. The birthday girl was delighted and we all ALL have a charming memory of this day! Thanks to Jordan and Lemongrass for making this a memorable dining experience for my birthday girl!

Overall, our evening at Lemongrass was extremely enjoyable. The food was great and the service was good. The only complaint was that the first table we were seated at was extremely cold, as it was right over a vent on the floor and next to a box fan. We were unable to cover the vent, so we had to move seats. The weather was cold outside, low 40s, so the fan and cold vent weren't necessary. Once we moved seats, the rest of the dinner was lovely.

Overall good and we will return, but not great. Not as busy as the other restaurants around it so easier to get a reservation a couple hours in advance. Seems that locals know that there are better choices overall, but none have Asian food/sushi. Server was very friendly but service was on the slow side. Again, pretty good overall, though. Definitely worth a try, just not my first choice in the Short North.

Waiter was fabulous and gave great recommendations like the salmon sashimi and crazy tuna roll. Crab Rangoon is huge! Ended up splitting the Pad Thai since we indulged on apps which was a wise decision and was best I've had since I can remember too. We felt well taken care of. My other dinner mates had the zucchini pasta and chicken salad- both looked amazing.

Let me start off by saying, the service and food were absolutely amazing. The presentation of our sushi was so impressive. However, I was upset about the table the host sat us at. It was tucked in a corner, in a very very crowded section. I felt frustrated because I had made reservations and this was a surprise date for my boyfriend, he loved it but kept bumping into the people behind him. I mentioned the table to our server (who was amazing) but there weren't any other tables to be sat at. When we were seated there were 3 other two top tables open, but by the time I could say something they were sat. At one table that was sat after us, was a very young couple in gym clothes, I was very discouraged and frustrated by that. With that said, the service and dinner absolutely blew me away. Nothing's ever perfect, we will definitely return, but hopefully never get stuck in that corner ever again!

Don't go in during happy hour. The food is really good but not worth a 45 minute wait for two appetizers and 2 sushi rolls. It took 10 minutes to get one round of drinks. We decided not to order another round because we didn't think it would show up.

I was disappointed in my meal. I had shrimp and scallop, cashew entree. The vegetables tasted as though they were just steamed and did not have much flavor. There were like three cashews. It was not a high quality meal like one would expect for the price.

This was our first time to Lemongrass and finding a parking spot was horrible. We had a reservation for 5 and the noise level was so loud we couldn't even hear each other talk. Most of us tried the menu for restaurant week. We all found the appetizer selection fantastic. The Lemongrass soup was very good. The description said mixed vegetables and it was mostly mushrooms. Good thing we love mushrooms. 3 of us ordered the filet mignon and shrimp. We should have known better than to order steak at an Asian restaurant. We were pretty disappointed in the meal. The 4 oz steak was about 1/4 inch thick and flavorless. The skewered shrimp was ok nothing fancy. It definitely was not worth $200 after tip. We probably won't return for a 2nd try.
